Here's a link to an interview with Shannon Wheeler. It's not about Too Much Coffee Man (look up Live Wire radio + Shannon Wheeler if you really want that). It's about a graphic novel he's working on (set in New Orleans, post Katrina) and I CAN'T WAIT FOR IT TO COME OUT! Also he has a great laugh and who doesn't want to hear a great laugh?

As far as this book collection goes:

I bought the self-published comic book issues reprinted in this fine volume as they appeared in the mid-1990s, and just finished rereading this 1999 anthology, again.
Our hero, Too Much Coffee Man, is silly, surreal, and slavishly devoted to The Bean.

Meh. I would almost give this one star alone, except for a few good moments and the nostalgia it holds for me. This is a book that I found revelatory at 16, and just.. uninspired at 27. The author even writes about having no inspiration, just wanting to be popular. Ugh.
Quite simply one of my favorite "pick up and read in one sitting" books of all time. It's not genius, it's not high art, but it's damn funny, and something that most of us cafe-dwelling over-educated slackers can get hooked on.
No likey! Not a graphic novel, it is a strip. Neurosis is not funny to me. That is all.
Bringing back the memories of Quackenbush's and The Flight Path Cafe in Austin, TX...
